Compost Update: Engineering Technologist Brandon Shipman from the Public Works Department presented a summary on the composting program initiated this past summer in anticipation of issuing a waste collection tender. 71 people (46% urban 49% rural and 4% non-residents) participated in the composting workshops this past summer, and of those 62 residents received complimentary composters. Of the 10 participants who had their waste studied, it was found that 64% was waste, 29% compost and 7% meats or other. A follow up survey will be sent to participants and a second waste audit is planned for the winter.
